When Les Blake founded his nursery in Phoenix's Moon Valley neighborhood, he adopted an approach that was unconventional at the time: after selling a tree or shrub, his staffers would also deliver and plant it at no extra charge. Today, Moon Valley Nursery Las Vegas's staffers hold to that mission—they plant any item in their collection, including more than 24 international types of evergreens, 24 species of palm trees, and 20 species of colorful desert trees. Staffers also oversee ranks of citrus trees such as mandarin, lemon, and grapefruit, and shrubs that make lawns explode in yellows, purples, and reds. Free landscaping consultations help customers launch front-yard makeovers, along with lawn pottery and fountains ranging from neoclassical to modern. Customers can feed new plantings with fertilizers such as house-blend Moon Juice, which uses organic enzymes and amino acids to stimulate the growth of plant cells while ensuring they never develop human emotions.
An experienced personal trainer, amateur bodybuilder, and former gymnast, Carrie Carmichael discovered her true calling while helping her fellow cops stay in shape. Her fitness career quickly evolved from part-time personal trainer to entrepreneur in 2008, when she opened her gym. Alongside a team of certified trainers, Carmichael now conditions clients of all fitness levels with a high-intensity style that uses functional movements and short bursts of cardio to whittle and tone bodies. The trainers safely guide students through the nine foundational CrossFit movements: squats, front squats, overhead squats, press, push press, push jerk, deadlifts, medicine-ball clean, and sumo deadlift high pull.
The trainers teach CrossFit classes in levels one and two to ensure that their clients' muscles are not overtaxed. They also shape up little ones during CrossFit kids' classes. When they're not teaching their students to toss around weighted medicine balls or deadlift a beached whale, trainers customize workouts with personal-training and yoga classes, as well as amplify results with USANA nutrition supplements.
Coinciding with National Bullying Awareness Month, Nevada PEP plans to raise awareness about the dangers of bullying this October by installing its disability-bullying- prevention programs in local schools. In each school, bullying-prevention bulletin boards, pledge bookmarks, and school-wide announcements will suggest ways for students to stand up to bullying and encourage them to help abolish bully behavior from their school culture. The program aims to reduce individual incidents of bullying and create a climate where students feel safe to learn. Nevada PEP requires additional funding to help cover the transportation, production, and material costs of running the disability-bullying-prevention program in schools.
Between dust mites, pet dander, mold, and other contaminants, the air in homes and apartments can contain considerably more allergens than the air outdoors—a danger considering people spend approximately 90% of their time inside. As full-service HVAC technicians, the staff at Air Supply Inc. keeps indoor air breathable with regular vent cleanings, purging homes of the microscopic hazards. The fully licensed, insured, and bonded team also maintains and replaces heating and cooling units, carrying out 43-point inspections that include searching for leaks, checking the wiring, and yelling political platitudes into the furnace to replenish its hot air.
